Medium Nessus Plugin ID 68469
SynopsisThe remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionFrom Red Hat Security Advisory 2012:0151 :
Updated conga packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs, and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote cluster and storage management.
Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in luci, the conga web-based administration application. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into the luci interface, into visiting a specially crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in the context of the user's luci session. (CVE-2010-1104, CVE-2011-1948)
These updated conga packages include several bug fixes and an enhancement. Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8 Technical Notes, linked to in the References, for information on the most significant of these changes.
Users of conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues and add this enhancement. After installing the updated packages, luci must be restarted ('service luci restart') for the update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected conga packages.
